Living on the Edge of Death (Part Two) and A Tribute to Adrienne Rich

Shanti Soule and Stephanie Sugars continue last week’s conversation about their choices during the terminal stage of their illnesses.

Robert McRuer talks about how Adrienne Rich and other lesbian feminists gave is a more free, more accessible world. Although she did not find a political identity in her disability, Rich’s essay
“Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence.” has influenced a generation of disability scholars.

Robert McRuer is an English professor at George Washington University, the author of Crips Theory: Cultural Signs of Queerness and Disability and, his most recent book, an anthology called, Sex and Disability.

With an essay by Jacob Lesner-Buxton, “Dancing The Night Away”

Hosted by Shelley Berman and Adrienne Lauby
